Last weekend I bought myself a Prism Nexus after getting hooked having a go of my mates $40 hobby store stunt kite while having a day down at the beach at Kingscliff. Ideally I wanted to start with something a little bigger like the Quantum but budget wouldn't allow it this pay - guess it's an excuse to get more kites later on though hehe!
I'm quite keen to try and make it a habit of flying regularly - once a week or fortnight. I live in Algester on the South-side and would prefer to keep my travel for kiting to a max of 30 minutes each way (cost of fuel and all). There is a sports field in walking distance, though the 2 Sundays I have visited it, it was being used for Little Athletics, going to check it out on the Saturday this weekend if the wind is up. Best location I know of at present is the Murarrie Recreation Ground where the Brisbane Kite Festival was held, which is approx 25 minutes from me.
Would love to hear any suggestions of other nearby places on the South-side that are good for flying. In the meantime I'll continue to scour the sattelite map in Google Earth for potential locations.
